Rent a car from Cairns Airport

Cairns Airport is Queensland’ssecond busiest and serves as a gateway for exploring the region. Begin your trip to the tropics by picking up a rental car from the terminal after you land.

From here, you can set out to explore all the natural wonders that the area has to offer, including what is arguably Australia’s most popular tourist destination – the Great Barrier Reef.

We recommend beginning your trip to Queensland’s far north by first exploring the city of Cairns – which with an Australian accent, sound like ‘cans’.

The city has a laid back vibe, with more people tending to dress down, rather than up. This casual atmosphere lends itself well to whiling away the day, which is what makes it so popular with backpackers.

All the heat and humidity means it’s always beer drinking weather. And rather fittingly, Cairns is awash with plenty of watering holes where you can quench your thirst – as well as plenty of places for food on a budget.

There's no beach directly in the city, but the gorgeous Esplanade Lagoon is a great hangout spot that more than makes up for it. However, if you are craving some sand between your toes, jump in your rental car and Cairns’ northern beaches are only a short drive away.

Cairns has an undeniably infectious holiday vibe – and why wouldn’t it? With perfect holiday weather nearly all year round, and stunning scenery on its doorstep, it’s an ideal place for getting out and exploring. And what better way to explore than by driving yourself in a rental car.

Visit the Great Barrier Reef in your hire car from Cairns Airport

The world-famous Great Barrier Reef is a once in a lifetime experience for many people, and a must-do when visiting this part of the world. To ensure that you get the most out of your trip to the reef, it’s worth spending a little extra time and money to get out to the Outer Great Barrier Reef, which is where the reef is at its best.

Taking a trip out further gives you a greater chance to see coral, fish and other marine life at their best and brightest. Book a trip with one of the many tour operators in Cairns, most of whom offer all-inclusive packages. For those interested in diving, there really is no greater place on earth to delve beneath the surface. A trip to the Outer Reef offers endless diving opportunities, all with a stunning array of marine life.

Take a drive out of town in your rental car

As well as the natural wonders that surround Cairns, there are also some charming little beach towns worth visiting or spending a night in. Some of the best beaches in Australia are also just a short drive away. Some highlights include Trinity Beach, Palm Cove, Ellis Beach, Nudey Beach, and Four Mile Beach.

Jump in your hire car and visit Port Douglas 

Jump in your rental car and take a short drive north where you’ll find Port Douglas, a small town with effortless beauty and charm. From the million-dollar marina, to the dreamy Four Mile Beach and the five-star hotels, you’ll have no trouble switching off and settling into holiday mode.

Since its early days as a remote port and fishing village, Port Douglas has developed into an upmarket resort town that attracts “flashpackers”, in stark contrast to Cairns' backpacker vibe. Any Port Douglas itinerary should definitely include a sunset sail from the marina.

Cairns and far north Queensland are some of the best parts of Australia. For the best way to see it all, jump in a hire car and hit the road.

Wherever you want to go, you’ll get there in a rental car from Hertz at Cairns Airport.
